a journey to finding self
under harvest moon
As I said at the outset there would be emotions involved on this journey,
that at starting point the terrain was just a sketchy outline but likely we would encounter some emotional landscape, needing inner strength to see it through...
See first post *here*
I wanted the path of the journey to reveal itself to me intuitively,
I felt like I needed to pour my personal emotions into paint at this point,
but how do you paint
Looking at the journey document there seemed a natural little place ready mapped out to lay the first drop of raw paint emotion. At the centre there was a stitched outline of a heart shape that I hadn't noticed previously. it popped right out at me...
These feelings soon melted when I softened the stroke and took to massaging the heart with a lighter touch adding a softer shade, thinking about the message yoga had given me on the previous day...
As I relaxed into the silver light and breathed more easily the feelings seemed to be released from the heart as if through wings of fire, up and out of the painting, leaving only smears of red emotion behind...
The whole painting seemed to take on a swirling cosmic light effect, the next day a friend left me a supportive message, not knowing about this painting part of the journey~>
"When I went into Silence this morning, asking for help, I saw the image of two hands and forearms being held out - as if in offering, inviting me to take the hands and be lifted up..."

I took this as a message from the universe and decided to draw these very same hands hugging my heart!
I feel this journey is a collaboration of hearts! That friend's support is part of the journey, I am grateful for this, I will show my gratitude by including all suggestion and comments in the final 'journey document' ~>~>
to be revealed! x
